Tickets and Transportation Funding
Students who participate in arts learning experiences often show improvement in academic and social development. At the Harris Center for the Arts, we believe attending a cultural arts performance is an important part of the student learning process.
The Harris Center for the Arts has a limited amount of grants available to help offset the cost of tickets and transportation to one of our School Matinee Series performances. To see if your school qualifies, please read the information below.
